Red Robin to build Rogers restaurant.
One or two locations in Little Rock are possible in 2006, a corporate spokesman said.
Young said the new Rogers restaurant will have 338 seats and employ about 90 people. He said it costs about $2.5 million to build a Red Robin restaurant.
Red Robin "America's Gourmet Hamburgers & Spirits" was founded in Seattle, Wash., in 1969. In 2004, with more than 250 restaurants in the U.S. and Canada, Red Robin had about $409 million in sales.
The Red Robin in Fayetteville had $1.3 million in sales for the five months of fiscal 2004 that it was open, according to the city's hotel-motel-restaurant tax collections, which end the year with November. If the Red Robin had been open all 12 months of the year and continued at that same rate ($265,427 per month), it would have been No. 3 in the city--behind Olive Garden and Red Lobster with $3.2 million in gross sales. All three restaurants are located in the CMN Business Park near the Northwest Arkansas Mall.
